K1 visa

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

hello Vj'ers world!

this forum has been of big help for me by answering some of the questions that just keep on popping out of my mind while waiting for that "big day" when my petition gets approved. my fiance had received (12-26-12) the NOA1 letter with a confirmation number that the packet he sent had arrived in Texas box office. and based on what i read on the internet, the time frame for a K1 visa processing is 5mos more or less(corrections are welcome :D ). so for now, all we can do is wait and keep on praying that it will be approved sooner than expected (just hoping :yes: )

my question is, will there be any problem if we don't use snail mails or any phone calls as our way of communication? but we do chat everyday for a year now and we make sure that the conversations are being saved to use as a proof of our on-going relationship and some emails too but not as many as our chat conversations. he visited me twice last year and made a trip together on the last one so we have lots of photos together but no date imprinted on them and we saved almost all the receipts, hotel papers, airplane tickets, engagement ring etc. so the only thing we don't have right now are snail mails or cards or any phone bills since we find it more convenient and cheaper to use the internet instead. do you think there will be a disadvantage if we can't show those kind of evidences at the interview?

your advice will be much appreciated specially those who had gone through all this process.. :D

newbie :)

I think you should be ok. I also advise that you create a Timeline and 10 years residency as well.

i see. i guess it will be a case to case basis then depending on what the consul might ask for huh :hehe: oh well, i'm glad that the pictures are seems to be the best proof that we can provide and i will just have to be well-prepared with the other things that might be needed as well. your experience seems to be an easy one (as i can see it :yes: )

and i hope mine can be like that too when it comes :D

thank you for your reply, helps a lot. God bless

to use the internet instead. do you think there will be a disadvantage if we can't show those kind of evidences at the interview?

You need to provide many evidences at the interview to prove to a total stranger that you two are involved in a legitimate relationship with the intention of marrying each other and staying married to each other.

So....you need to generate as many different types of evidences that when all put together will "tell your tale".

Many folks have no evidences and some have been OK and some have not. Purposefully generating evidence has always been my suggestion.

Oh, and if the cost to do this is an issue......what about the costs to bring your fiance here and have them live here? Those future costs are far greater than some extra dollars spent now to send you fiance some flowers (with receipts and photos of them with the gift).....or mailing a letter to them......or send them a calendar with your hometown photos on it.....or sending a CD of photos of their new house or town that they will be living in.

The consular officers in Manila like to look at photos. Don't worry about not having a time stamp on the photos. Just write the info on the back of the photos. However, bring all of the other evidence you have. You'll be fine without snail mail and phone calls.
